TrentBarton 748, Derby Bus Station, 07-01-2017
One journey per hour on the Nottingham - Derby Red Arrow previously ran through on a linmited stop basis from Derby to Chesterfiled via Ripley and Alfreton. However, service reliability suffered through importing delays either side of Derby, so when the last revamp of Red Arrow was ndertakne it was cut back to operate between nottingham and Derby. To reain a limited stop service betweeen Derbyshire's two largest towns, The Comet was introduced using these cascaded Volvos in a black version of the company livery.
While the comfort is perhaps less than the coaches previously used, the higher number of intermediate stops means a low-floor vehice is more sutiable for this section. Ironcially, even with the connection iot is stil the fastest way from Nottingham to Chesterfield!
